    • Increasing regulation will support reallocation of capital to sustainable investing.
    • The US is behind, but the SEC and the Federal Reserve have signalled a positive direction of travel.
    • Corporates outside of Europe, who want access to capital in the region, will face EU sustainability regulation.
    • The qualitative aspect of ESG analysis is underappreciated.
    • Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is a movement and not a moment.
